Frontpage 2003 use with Mozilla Firefox

I created a website in frontpage 2003 using a DWT throughout my site. My

site previews in IE fine but when viewed in Firefox there are pieces of my

layout missing from tables in my layout. They are random sized boxes that

seem to be cutout of the layout tables i put together. I use Editable

regions in my DWT to input text and graphics. Is there anyway to get around

these missing pieces in Firefox so that my site is fully compatible in both

browsers?

Here is an example.....http://spitfirelacrosse.com/Contact%20Us.htm

As you can see in firefox, their are blank slots in the bottom right and

left corners.

Any help would be appreciated at what i could do to solve this issue!

Thanks

    • The reason for this is simple. You are relying on tables that have a 100%

      height. The problem is, height is not a valid HTML attribute on a table.

      This means that the various browsers will do whatever they want with it. You

      can't rely on this to create a colored cell. The left-hand and right-hand

      tables that you use to get the white background and orange side line cannot

      be relied upon. You should redo them so that these are actually full table

      cells. Add a couple columns so each side can have a white column and an

      orange border column.

      Also, you may want to rename some of your files. Spaces are invalid in

      images (that's why you'll see some of the %20's in the image URL). Also,

      paranthesis aren't good in urls so you will want to remove them. Stick to

      letters only plus underscores or dashes (good for putting in where a space

      should be).

      Hope this helps,

    • Well i tried to recreate the tables. The problem i am running into now is

      that when i make all the cells a definte height instead of 100% they do not

      auto conform to the rest of the site. For instance i have 3 columns. All

      cells have a height of 500, I past some text into the middle cell and that

      cell expands its height to fit the text wheras the other 2 cells along side

      of it stay at 500.

      I have a basic understanding of HTML and tables and I am learning in the

      process. I am used to just designing in FP and not worrying about code. Any

      help is appreciated.

      Thanks

    • When you have expandable cells, it is best to assign cell colors when you need to add color and not

      images.
